Mooji is a true light in this world, whose presence, wisdom and loving guidance point us to who we are beyond the limitations of our conditioning and identity. Universal in his appeal, Mooji’s clarity, compassion, openness and humour profoundly touch the hearts of those who meet him, thereby inspiring each one to find within themselves the deep peace, love and silence they recognise in him.
Born on 29 January 1954 in Port Antonio, Jamaica, Mooji moved to Brixton, London when he was a teenager. In 1987, a chance meeting with a Christian mystic brought Mooji, through prayer, into the direct experience of the Supreme Being. This inspired him to ‘walk out of his life’, an expression he uses to convey the profundity of that recognition. In 1993, Mooji travelled to India where he met his Master, Sri HWL Poonja, lovingly known by devotees as ‘Papaji’. Mooji spent several auspicious months at Papaji’s feet, where whatever still remained of an active ego was finally uprooted through his Master’s grace.
Soon after, recognising Mooji’s radiance, people from various parts of the world began to approach him to simply sit in his presence and ask questions regarding their spiritual search. The capacity to guide them arose spontaneously in him. Since 1999, Mooji has been sharing satsang in the form of spontaneous encounters, open satsangs, silent retreats and satsang intensives with the many seekers who visit him in search of the direct experience of Truth.
